Shortly after Dylan was born, I unsuspectingly came across Reece's Rainbow. Reece's Rainbow is an international orphan adoption ministry. Oh, I used to peek at it every now and then and wonder...
Time continued on and as things in our own lives began settling down, I became even more interested in visiting the site. Recently, I have also begun following others' journeys who have chosen this adoption path. Some are just beginning the process and others are in Eastern Europe right now bringing their Little Ones home.
Dylan's friends Joaquin and Bridget will soon be welcoming their newest sisters home. You may follow their journeys at Saving Sofia and Loving Alina. I have also discovered a blog called No Greater Joy Mom. I do not know Adeye, the woman who writes this blog, but I have found her story extremely...powerful. Take a look...
While scrolling through the cuties on Reece's Rainbow one day, I came across Sergey. He immediately caught my attention because he looks like he could be Dylan's twin brother!! The other day I was looking at the site again and Cassidy caught sight of Sergey and said, "Hey! That looks like Dylie!".
I emailed Andrea and asked if I could be an advocate for Sergey. She said of course, so here I go. I'm not exactly sure what I can do to help this sweet boy, but my hope is that by getting his little face out there, someone may feel inspired to donate to his adoption or possibly even feel pulled to bring him home.
It's imperative that he is brought home. You see, orphans with a disability in Eastern Europe are transferred to mental institutions shortly after their third birthday. They are tied to their cribs and left to die. It's horrific. It's their reality.
We need to help, in any way that we can.
On Adeye's blog the other day, I read, "Every child deserves the loving arms of a mommy to hold them tight..."
"Every single child.".
